Building microservices is awesome, having them talk to each other is even more awesome! But in today’s world, you can’t be too careful when it comes to sending sensitive data across the wire. Last week I was at PubNub for a Meetup where, together with Jordan Schuetz and Nicholas Grenié, we spoke about cool things you can do with PubNub.
Together with the O’Reilly team we did a webinar on Low-Code App Dev. APIs and microservices are awesome if you’re a technical developer, but what if you’re not and you still need to understand how they connect? In this 60 minute webcast, Leon Stigter and Bruno Trimouille of TIBCO Software introduce how low-code platforms can help marketing and sales teams to automate their workflows and deliver on business goals without getting under the hood.
Back in 2012, the engineering team at Heroku created a set of best practices to develop and run web apps. That document, consisting of 12 incredibly important ‘rules’, was dubbed the 12 Factor App manifesto. Over the years the document gained a lot of traction and especially with the rise of microservices having a 12 Factor App compliant app became important. With the rise of microservices a lot of other practices and tools (like git, DevOps, Docker and Configuration Management) became very popular as well.
The world of integration is hybrid. Not only hybrid in the sense that you have on-premise and cloud-based applications, but also hybrid in the types of people that connect systems together or build something completely new. What really doesn’t change is the fact that people want to use the tools that fit their purpose.
